Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi accused the U.S. of flouting agreements reached during a November summit between President Joe Biden and Xi Jinping, in the latest signal that efforts to ease tensions had stalled. 

Wang protested what he said were U.S. efforts to interfere with the Beijing Olympics next week in a call with Secretary of State Antony Blinken, according to a statement posted on the Foreign Ministry’s website Thursday. The senior Chinese diplomat also cited U.S. support for Taiwan, as well as Washington’s efforts to build “small circles” of like-minded nations to counter Beijing.
